I saw this tutorial on the SCS site and tried it! It is really fun to make but it is time consuming. I used the Fiskar circle cutter to cut the acetate and it worked wonderfully. It takes a VERY long time for the snowflakes stamped on the acetate to dry (SU white craft ink). I tried to use a dryer to speed things up but it seemed to warp the acetate, even with very low heat. Best to let it dry for three or four days. I stamped the snowman on glossy white paper, colored with markers and then used Stickles to add some sparkle. I also dotted the snowflakes on the background paper with Stickles. Of course this also adds to the drying time. TFL

This technique turned out really well for you. I love the red and white gingham bottom and the red button on the snowflake. Have you tried using white stazon to stamp the snowflakes on the acetate? It dries very quickly without the need for heat.
